Levocetirizine is an antihistamine; it works by blocking the release of a body chemical called histamine.
Histamines respond to allergies or irritations from both endogenous and exogenous irritants. Its response creates symptoms known as allergic reactions. As Levocetirizine blocks the release of histamine from the cells in your body, it relieves symptoms of allergies like a runny nose, red-watery-itchy eyes, sneezing, and itching. Levocetirizine also helps relieve itching caused by hives. Levocetirizine is excreted via the urine but a small percentage can beexcreted in feces.
